“The OME is the first organization to recognize the vibrationism of François Faucher as being a dominant style and set to mark the 21st century, just like Impressionism, Cubism and Expressionism were able to mark other centuries. "

IMPRESSIONISM

This pictorial movement was born in France, in the second half of the 19th century. It is notably characterized by small-format paintings, visible brush strokes, the use of unusual viewing angles, a tendency to note fleeting impressions, the mobility of climatic and luminous phenomena, rather than the stable appearance and conceptual of things and to report them directly to the web.

Impressionist painters, who above all see themselves as concrete and living painters, choose their subjects from landscapes or everyday scenes of contemporary life, freely interpreted and recreated according to the vision and personal sensitivity of each of them. Working on the motif, they push the study of the open air very far, making light and its play the essential and moving element of their painting, discarding dark shades and elaborate shades to use pure colors.

CUBISM

This artistic movement appears at the beginning of the 20th century. Produced mainly in the Paris region, the cubist works represent objects analyzed, decomposed and reassembled in an abstract composition, as if the artist were multiplying the different points of view.

 

They also share a recurrence of geometric shapes and the theme of modernity.

 

The act of moving around an object to capture it from several successive angles merged into a single image is now a generally accepted phenomenon to describe cubism.

EXPRESSIONISM

This artistic movement appeared in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. It is the projection of a subjectivity which tends to distort reality to inspire the viewer with an emotional reaction.

The representations are often based on agonizing visions, distorting and stylizing reality to achieve the greatest expressive intensity. Expressionist works often feature symbols, influenced by emerging psychoanalysis and research into symbolism.

Expressionism breaks with Impressionism through a very aggressive form: violent colors and sharp lines.

Expressionism is not really a movement or a school, but more of a reaction against academism and society.

VIBRATIONISM

This artistic movement was created in 1993 by the Canadian painter François Faucher. It is defined as an art form which consists in giving the observer the impression that the painting he is looking at is vibrating. This style, characterized by the effects of shaking and vibration, is created by the peripheral distortion of the subject and the addition of loose elements. Using the right materials and colors can also help create a vibrating effect.

In 1983, while painting outdoors in intense cold, the artist placed a few brushstrokes in the wrong place on the canvas, because his hand was shaking. Looking at this painting, he notices certain vibrations in the drawing. Subsequently, he exploits this discovery and distorting his subjects at first timidly, then in a very pronounced way. For five years, the artist has evolved this very particular signature, by adding detached elements as well as material, which help to give movement to his paintings.

Berlin Wall

The construction and fall of the Berlin Wall are among the most important moments in the history of the 20th century. This wall divided Berlin into two parts for 28 years. François Faucher decided to immortalize these events in his own way.

    

Here is the description of the painting: The Berlin Wall, known as the “Wall of Shame”, was built from 1961. It measures between 3.5 and 4 m in height and stretches 155 km around West Berlin.

At the foot of the wall is built what has been called “the band of death.” Between 1961 and 1989, more than 5000 people tried to cross the wall and more than 3000 were arrested. 588 people perished in this attempt.

   

In 1989, following the wind of liberation driven by Mikhail Gorbachev, the wall was dismantled at an average rate of one hundred meters per night, before the organization of an official demolition which ended at the end of 1991. Once freed, families and friends could see each other again after 28 years of forced separation.

                          

In the area called "East Side Gallery", the remains of the wall are decorated with several impressive paintings reflecting many events related to its history.

   

There is not much left today. Souvenir hunters snatched many fragments, giving rise to a veritable black market.

Meech Lake Accord

Meech Lake Accord

 18 x 90 in  (46 x 229 cm)

After the failure of the Meech Lake Accord with the objective of defining new relationships between the provinces and more specifically, between Quebec and the rest of Canada, François Faucher began the same day the creation of a painting relating this story. . On June 24, he finished painting the part that represents Quebec.

   

Here are the explanations: Mr. Robert Bourassa, Premier of Quebec, alone on his island (Quebec), extends his hand to Mr. Brian Mulroney, Prime Minister of Canada, who is on the verge of drowning. The seven characters forming the chain correspond to the premiers of the other provinces who have accepted the agreement. The seventh figure to put a foot on solid ground is Mr. Frank McKenna, Premier of New Brunswick, who at one point showed some reluctance to the deal. The man with the green face crossing his arms is Mr. Clyde Wells, Premier of Newfoundland, who flatly refused the deal. The individual attached to the post is the Premier of Manitoba, Mr. Gary Filmon, who would likely have accepted the deal if it had not been for the intervention of a native. The character with binoculars is Mr. Jean Chrétien who describes the scene to Mr. Pierre-Elliott Trudeau who applauds his victory.
